Since the 1990’s emotional intelligence has gained importance as a predictor of academic and career success. The American College Personnel Association advocates incorporating emotional intelligence into professional development activities. As part of a research study to measure and improve emotional intelligence of a cohort of students at a small public southeastern university, two survey instruments were used to measure emotional intelligence. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the results of a direct comparison of two instruments used to measure emotional intelligence, the EQI-Hed and TTI-EQ.
The first instrument is the EQI Higher Education Edition (EQI-Hed) is a self-report measure of emotionally and socially competent behavior as an estimate of one’s social and emotional intelligence. The EQI-Hed was developed by Reuven Bar-On (2000) to measure an array of non-cognitive capabilities, competencies and skills based on the construct model of social and emotional intelligence. The second instrument is the TTI Emotional Quotient (TTI-EQ) assessment to measure an individual’s emotional intelligence. TTI-EQ focuses on five areas within interpersonal and intrapersonal intelligence.
